Suits were filed Saturday, at Vicks burg, in the chancery court, by Cal houn k Green, attorneys f«ir Hie State revenue agent) against Sheriff Brennan and City Assessor and Collector A. Kiersky an«l their respective bondsmen for the amount of the taxes on certain property they are alleged to have fail ed to assess. Sheriff Brennan is sued for #11,250, and Assessor Kiersky for $24,200. These suits grow out of the change in the laws relative to assess ment ami taxation, ami defining the duties und powers of the State revenue agent. A declaration is Wing prepared ane suit will be filed in the next day or two, against the inemWrs of the boar«l of eupervisors and their bondsmen, umler Section 325 oj the new Code, for the recovery of $4375.28, alleged to have Wen illegally allowed in payment of magistrates, constables, sheriffs and cir cuit çlerks' costs in criminal cases tried by magistrates. In this same suit, which is in W half of the State revenue agent; is a count reciting that the superintendent oi roads has Wen paid #1200 a year, when legally enlitled to only half that amount, and Becking to recover the dif f« rence of $1200. The statute says that the superintendent's salary shall not exceed $1200, but does not say, in s i many words, whether this shall W paid him for his entire term of two years or per annnm. Counsel contend that the amount is for the entire term.

DUN'S MERCANTILE REVIEW. Wheat and Cotton Are Lower Than Ever Before. in B. O. Dun.%Co's., New York, week ly review of trade says: Failures for 1894 are fully reported this week, lx*ing 13,885 in the United States, and 1,856 in the Dominion of Canada. Liabilities in the United Stutes were #172,992,856, and in Can ada $17,616,2l5. Neither the decrease of over half in this country or the in crease of over forty per cent, in Cana da is surprising, but the statement shows that most of the decrease in the United States is in manufacturing lia bilities, while the entire increase 7 in Canada is in liabilities of trading con cerna. A few States, including New York and Pennsylvania, show more failures than in 1893, and in a few Southern States the amount of liabilities is larger, but in central and Western States very much smaller. In cleveu of the last thirty-eight years reported liabilities have been larger than in 1894, though for this year and 1898 the statement is confined to commercial failures as it was not in former years. The failures have been 12.5 in . very thousand fiftfl* «b dug Imsinew. the lia bilities averaged $192.77 to each firm in trade, an«l In proportion to the vol ume o' solvent business represented by all clearing house exchanges $2.63 for every $1,000. Tin* complete review of tho different branches of business places in a clear Bjht the fact that prices of commodi tit* are at the lowest level ever known. Eighty years Ago In July prices aver aged only 73.69 per rent, of the prices for the same articles, and in the mar kets Jan. 1, 1860, and this rrmained the brvrest point ever touched until Au* ? ust 10, 1893, when the average fell to 2.76, but early this year prices dropped below all previous rec ords and have never recover ed« the overage Deccfibef 23 being on ly 68.73 p«T cent, of the price» of 1860. The range was Very little higher at the end of the year sind about as low Octo ber 25. The full since a year ago has liech öj per <umt., but very unequal in oth#r branches. I» iron und steel pro ducts 14 per cent ; in wool 13.4 per cent. ; in woolens and cotton» about 15 l>er cent. These changes coni rast shandy with the decline of wages paid I>er hour's work which averages only | per cent, less than a year ago. The condition of industries has l»cen largely governed by tho fall in prices, and while production is much larger tlmn a year ago, the average increase Wing fairly mensmel by the increase of 8:24 per dtmt. in hours of work done in Novemlier compared with tho pro- i viouH pear, it lias been the controlling feature in almost every important in «lustry that consumption has not kept pace with and has not sustained prices. In iron an«l steel, the lowest prices of the year are at the close and the lowest ever known, the de mau« 1 calling for less than half tho usual quantity of rail.-«, with large decreases in many other branches, though probably the use of structural form was larger in 1894 than ever lie fore. The woolen industry reconls a pro duction for the year aWmt a quarter lees than normal, anti for the last four months 28.47 per cent, less than in 1892 in quantity ot wool consumed, but In value of product the decrease was of cottfse greater. The year has Wem especially note year worthy for the lowest price of wheat and cotton on record. Both suffer from unprecedented accumulation of stocks, the crop being large. Outsido this country wheat production has not increased enough to justify a price of sixty cents at New York, ami the ac cumulation iH largely «lue to false re ports of yield, intended to frighten buyers and raise prices. The same in fluence has been felt in cotton, which is also affected, by world-witle depres sion in business and «lecrease in con sumption of goods. In other produce markets tho year 1ms boon relatively less important. AN ASYLUM BURNED. All the Patluuts Rescued From the Burning Building. The centre builtiing and south wing of the Southern Illinois Hospital for the Insane at Anna, was burned at 11 > 50 o'clock Friday night. The building contained 600 patients, all of whom were gotten out safely. None of the attendants or patients had time to secure their clothing, and the snow worked great hardships in trans ferring the patients to other quarters. It is now thought none «if those con flne<l in the asylum are at large, though desjierate attempts at escape were mode during the progress of the fire, and it was with great ilifficulty that the poor creatures were kept to gether. They were removed to a new building. The patients will be taken care of in the liest possible manner under the circumstances. The loss will exceed $390,000. The centro Imildings ami south wing are completely destroyed. Terrible confusion prevailed during the fire ami it is miraculous that many lives were not lost. The fire was rai der complete subjection Wforc day light. The fiâmes were first discover ed near the roof of tho main builtiing, and cannot bo accounted tor. The asylum has its own waterworks, but for some reason the system was ineffectual in fighting the fire. The plugs seemed to have frozen. Wolcott Renominated.
